Don't Wait to Travel • Traveling 9 to 5 The clock's ticking... I recently had a friend express his desire to travel around the world once his kids were out of the house and he was retired (he is currently in his late 20s.) He asked me a question that I thought was important enough to share here on the blog: Why Now? Why at the young age of 26, at the beginnings of our careers have we decided to leave everything behind and take a chance. You Can’t Plan For Your Future Ok, so maybe you can plan, you can save money in the bank, and tell yourself that there is a schedule to life: go to college, get a job, buy a house, have kids and then retire. Gain a New Perspective By traveling sooner than later, your eyes will be opened, your ego humbled, your priorities re-adjusted. Overcome The Fear of Change The biggest fear most people carry around with them is change.

Les 9 règles d’or du voyage, selon Paulo Coelho | Le blogue Voyage L’écrivain Paulo Coelho, qui se décrit comme un pèlerin dans l’âme, vient de publier sur son blogue les 9 principaux trucs qu’il préconise pour bien voyager. En voici un aperçu (traduction libre). Désert blanc, Égypte - Gary Lawrence 1-Évitez les musées: si vous êtes dans une ville, n’est-il pas plus intéressant de vous attarder au présent plutôt qu’au passé? Certes, les musées ont leur utilité, mais ils nécessitent temps et objectivité – vous devez savoir à quoi vous y attendre, sinon vous en sortirez avec l’impression d’avoir vu quelque chose d’essentiel, sans vous rappeler ce que c’était. 2-Traînez dans les bars populaires: c’est là qu’une ville se révèle, là où se retrouve le commun des mortels, là où on peut tâter le pouls d’une population. 4-Voyagez seul – ou avec votre épouse, si vous êtes marié: ça vous demandera plus d’efforts, mais c’est la seule façon de laisser votre pays derrière vous, contrairement aux voyages organisés.

25 Epic Adventures By Travel Bloggers in 2012 As we quickly approach the end of 2012, we reflect on the year that was. Over the past twelve months we’ve followed the travels of many travel bloggers, reading about their epic adventures and admiring their wonderful photos and videos. Last year, we published an article titled 19 Epic Adventures by Travel Bloggers in 2011, highlighting a few of the awesome adventures by travel bloggers from that year. In an effort to make this an annual tradition, we’ve compiled our selections for this year’s list of epic adventures (in no particular order). Hopefully one of these adventures will inspire your travels in 2013! 1.

Idées week-end vacances et sorties en famille ou en amoureux 9 of the most unlikely countries to find the language you want to learn In the last five months, I have definitely received the most double takes of my life whenever I said that I had been learning all my Egyptian Arabic in Brazil. It’s just such an unlikely combination! Brazil has never had a huge or even tiny wave of Egyptian immigration. While there, I only managed to meet one single Egyptian in person in my entire 3 months. Then again, there are plenty of places that you can go that are not the country where your target language is official, but where you will find it surprisingly easy to practice… in person! I don’t just mean major cities where you are statistically more likely to run into more nationalities anyway; places that go beyond the natural international nature of capitals and economic centres, and interconnectedness of social networks to help you connect with “rare” speakers, who are actually really common. Here have been a few based on the numbers of people I’ve met in my travels: Japanese in Brazil German in Spain Hebrew in Peru Polish in USA

Traverser la planète en moto, mode d’emploi Tout plaquer un beau matin, enfourcher sa bécane et partir au bout du monde. Beaucoup en ont rêvé, peu l’ont réalisé. Des moyens de transport adaptés à ce type d’aventure, la moto semble particulièrement enivrante. C'est un voyage en forme d’histoire, celle, "incroyable", de la compagnie Royal Enfield, créée au Royaume-Uni à la fin du 19ème siècle, devenue fournisseuse de l’armée indienne en 1949 puis vendue à des fabricants indiens en 1994. Trouver un but Pour Fabienne, c’est l’histoire de la compagnie Royal Enfield, au-delà, bien sûr, du défi qu'elle s'impose. S’y prendre tôt, mais pas trop En fait, si on écoute Fabienne, on pourrait partir du jour au lendemain, sur un coup de tête, ou presque. Convaincre des sponsors Un point crucial. financer : l’huile de moteur, l’assurance, les bagages, l’ordinateur, les hôtels.
